The key here is that a presenter acts as a guide for the audience and for the expert to provide the content that keeps your audience engaged.
Many of the key features of the i OS and Android updates have disappeared, and customers seem to hate the fact that Microsoft has gone for a youth-oriented “Instagram-style” service, rather than the business-oriented, sophisticated app we’d grown to know and love.
Of course, it’s not just the glaring colours and horrific use of emojis that makes the new Microsoft redesign so unappealing.
Many users are complaining that the features they relied on have now gone missing, in exchange for an option to change the colour of your chat boxes or choose a new “theme” for the app.
To make way for these, let’s face it – pretty pointless – changes, Skype has removed a range of key elements, such as the ability to clearly see who’s online, and who isn’t.
The key is to have the mic as close to the expert’s mouth as possible.
It’s up to you if you want the mic to be seen in the shot.But a major issue with including experts is that they are often not available to be on-location for the meeting, or flying them in creates a cost that can’t be justified.Luckily, there is great technology that can solve this issue and allow your audience a high quality presentation of an expert from a remote location – even a continent away.New Tek has introduced a product called Talk Show that allows Skype video calls to be easily integrated into a live production environment with controls that can deliver broadcast quality sound and video of a remote expert or interviewee.Talk Show allows you to add live interviews, perspective, and credibility to your program, meeting or training by easily incorporating any connected Skype user as a guest speaker without the expense and effort of flying in an expert or hiring a crew to do a live remote feed. The advantage with Talk Show is that the quality of presentation – and therefor engagement with your audience – is infinitely better than trying to use the free download consumer-grade version of Skype most people are familiar with.If you’ve updated your ‘consumer’ Skype app recently, then you’ve probably got an opinion on the latest refresh, and if the latest reviews are anything to go by – it won’t be a positive one.
